  1. Im also curious if anyone's had trouble with getting wireless mic's into the country...? I'll have a carnet. Thanks.
  2. Hi there, my most esteemed colleagues. It's been a while. Glad (and grateful) to be back. I'm heading to Dubai in two weeks to shoot some scenics - general city shots, then to Al Ayn to shoot desert life, and finally to a private club to shoot golf. Does anyone have experience travelling there? I'm curious about how stringent customs might be (I'lll have 12 cases with a carnet), whether anyone can recommend a good co. to provide shooting permits and transpo/fixer for 2 days of broll shooting, whether a visa is required (i've found "yes' and "no" on the web.). It'll just be me and one other guy. We only need permits for public places since it's just city scenics. And the rest of the time we'll be on private property. Any advice/help from someone who's been would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! John Cole
  3. Cuba with 10 Cases, Anyone?

  6. Cuba with 10 Cases, Anyone?

    Thanks Jack. Big help. Did you travel usual ENG multi cases lights and etc? Also, I expect your gear felt like it was fairly safe in general? (I.e. Not like shenanigans at baggage or hotels in some countries where things can go missing)? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hi. I'm scheduled to travel to Cuba in a few weeks, and I'm wondering if anyone on this fine board has any experience or knowledge about getting into/out of Cuba with a lot of gear. Thank you! John Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks for asking, aginzo. No travel. we went local. Best. John

  12. Hello Gang. I've got a job in London in a couple weeks (will be shooting for four days). Need to bring lots of gear. People that hired me have not thought about visa requirements. I WILL get a carnet. Anybody know if I'll need a work visa? I'm working on a show for a famous golfer that will eventually air on cbs, but this isn't exactly a cbs gig... Though the final product will be for us tv. Has anyone been to England recently and did you travel with/without a work visa? Thanks!
  13. I started a thread like this on China travel, and got some great help. Thank you! I am also curious about Vietnam. I'm traveling to Vietnam soon with a tourist visa. Does anyone have experience shooting in Vietnam with a tourist visa? We are travelling into DaNang. We will fly either from Shanghai to DaNang, or from HongKong to DaNang. Trying to predict whether a full audio kit will be allowed, or if I'll have to pare way down (I need the full kit for my work in China right before this, but if customs in Vietnam is bad, I'll have to tough it out on smaller, less pro looking gear). My camera guy is also trying to decide whether to bring a real camera or just shoot on dinky dslr's. If anyone has experience, I'd be grateful to hear how it was for you! Thank you! John
  14. That's good news, MGough. Thanks. Do you have an American Passport? The overland route from Hong Kong to Shenzhen wouldn't let me in with my audio gear- spent two days trying. I'm hoping Shanghai will be kinder to me. Do you know any good fixers in Shanghai? John
